Abstract

This paper presents the “IAIF” scoreboard for European regional innovation systems. The heterogeneity of such systems requires the simultaneous use of a broad number of variables. The use of the Factor Analysis Technique allows us to work with a broad number of variables whose information will be reduced and converted to a few non-observable hypothetical variables called factors. Those factors reflect different specific aspects of the innovation system and are used –as sub indexes- to elaborate the overall IAIF index for European regional innovation systems. This index measures the innovative level of the regions and permits us not only to compare the technological capabilities of the different European regions but also permits the analysis of this capacity over time. We calculated this scoreboard for the regions of the former EU15 countries.

RESUMEN

Este artículo presenta el “IAIF scoreboard” para los sistemas regionales de innovación en Europa. La heterogeneidad de tales sistemas requiere el uso simultáneo de un amplio número de variables. El uso de la Técnica de Análisis del Factor nos permite trabajar con un extenso número de variables cuya información será reducida y convertida en unas pocas hipotéticas variables no observables. Esos factores muestran diferentes aspectos específicos del sistema de innovación y son utilizados –como subíndices- para elaborar finalmente el Índice IAIF para los sistemas de innovación regional europeos. Este índice mide el nivel innovador de las regiones y nos permite no sólo comparar las capacidades tecnológicas de las diferentes regiones europeas sino que también permite el análisis de esa capacidad en el tiempo. Calculamos este marcador para las regiones de los quince estados miembro (EU15).
